Cecily Strong as Sarah Koenig in SNL’s Serial parody

Oh man. Sarah Koenig’s Serial — the recently concluded true-crime podcast about a 1999 Baltimore murder — isn’t funny at all. But somehow, it managed to inspire what has got to be the best bit to come out of Saturday Night Live in years.

Cecily Strong’s take on Koenig is perfect. And the 6-minute video manages to spoof Serial‘s every quirk and trademark as we follow Koenig on an investigation into whether there can be any truth to the claim that an elf named Kris Kringle leaves presents at every home in the world over the course of just one night.
